Sepang, Kuala Lumpur: 27th July 2009 – Skytrax “World’s Best Low Cost Airline” and Asia’s biggest low-cost carrier, AirAsia announces today that it will be increasing its highly popular Kuala Lumpur -Trichy (Tiruchirappalli) route to 2nd direct daily flights commencing 1st September 2009. AirAsia currently serves the Trichy – Kuala Lumpur route with direct daily flights to Trichy departing from LCC Terminal, Kuala Lumpur on AirAsia’s spanking 180-seater Airbus A320.

Trichy situated in South India of Tamil Nadu, was the first destination in India serviced by AirAsia and since the inception on December 1st 2008, the Kuala Lumpur -Trichy route recorded an overwhelming response with consistently strong loads. To date, AirAsia has flown close to 70,000 guests in less than 8 months.

To celebrate the introduction of the 2nd Kuala Lumpur -Trichy frequency, AirAsia will be offering all-in-fare from RM129.00 (INR 1730.00). Booking period for the introduction of the 2nd frequency will begin from 28th July – 2nd August 2009 for the travel period from 1st September 2009 – 30th April 2010. Promotional seats are limited and available on first-come, first-served basis and made exclusively online via www.airasia.com and mobile.airasia.com

Kathleen Tan, Regional Head of Commercial, AirAsia Group says, “Yet again, we are proud to be servicing an underserved route and opening-up the market to the world. We had always known that the Kuala Lumpur -Trichy route will perform exceedingly well. Trichy is a highly popular and desired destination amongst the Hindus in Malaysia as it has an abundance of temples, which are popular pilgrimage sites for Hindus. And there are already increasing visiting friends and relatives (VFR) travelers from Trichy who are progressively using Kuala Lumpur as a connecting gateway to over 130 routes in ASEAN and beyond. In fact within the first month of flying to India, we have enjoyed a load factor of 100% on this route. We feel it is timely to add a 2nd frequency, which is a reinforcement of our growing interest in the Indian holiday demand,”

“Our recent initiative to remove the administration fee reiterates AirAsia’s commitment to offer big value so that everyone can fly following our move to abolish fuel surcharge last year. While our extensive network in Asia, AirAsia continues to offer cost effective direct point to point travel to Kuala Lumpur and beyond. Trichy being strategically situated and close to other tourist destinations including Chennai, tourists can also fly to many other cities in India. Moving forward, we will be expanding our route network further in India so please look out for AirAsia’s latest promotions on airasia.com.” concluded Kathleen

Really it is great to hear that Air Asia is opertating 2nd flight from Kolalambore to Trichy. Only our Indian oprators don't aware the potential of Trichy. There is potential for running flights directly or via other destinations from Trichy to Mumbai, Delhi, Hyderabad, Bangalore.

This is really good news and hope other private airlines start services from Trichy.I think AIE should start more services to Gulf sector rather than KL or Singapore.

If stalin visit IT park location, atleast things would move faster...

Proposed IT park buiilding is not at all planned for the growth of Trichy IT industry. They have to plan G+4 like in Madurai atleast.

I too hope Stalin's visit expedite the IT park work.I think they are waiting for JNNURM to take up the Integrated bus terminal and new market.

I really don't know what is ELCOT's plan for Trichy IT park building.They have been giving contrary information for the past couple of years.

Integrated Bus terminal has to be taken up by the state government inline with other cities of TN. Otherwise majority of the fund will go to only for this purpuse , Wish State government take this work .

I think, Trichy and Salem won't get much share of fund in JNNURM like what Coimbatore and Madurai got, So need some real infrasture development work in the city.

Well, in fact, it's high time the Indian government should allow many many foreign airlines to operate to Trichy instead. They could even make Trichy airport an International transit point, instead of being point to point. Hence, by this way, Trichy airport could attract many foreign airlines afar. But however, at the same time, infrastructures at the airport should be prepared, ready and operational in order to have such stature.

Indeed, Trichy will have fair share with JNNURM, just like Coimbatore and Madurai, since, Trichy is proving it's mettle in attracting several economically driven sectors like IT industry, Power industry,Fabrication industry, Educational industry, Service industry like the Airport, Rail, Road,Tourism, Medical tourism, Pilgrimage tourism etc.... Hence, current central&state governments has realised the potential of Trichy, in view of it's geographically god gifted location, and are ready to lend, support, organise in whatever manner deemed necessary in enhancing Trichy further into next METRO CITY in the makings.

Mr.Nehru says, the existing Gandhi market will be expanded and new market will come up in Ariyamangalam.

If corporation is planing a new market, then why spend on expanding the existing Gandhi market? Looks like they don't want to move the market out of city.

Tiruchi-Madurai track electrification by 2010




S. Vydhianathan


CHENNAI: With the completion of the Villupuram - Tiruchi electrification, the next phase of work will be on the Tiruchi –Madurai section, which Southern Railway plans to complete by March 2010.

R.P. Udayakumar, Chief Project Manager (CPM), Central Organisation for Railway Electrification (CORE), said all physical works had been completed up to Dindigul. Works were in progress on the Dindigul–Madurai section (66 route km). Being a double-line section, electrification had to be done on both lines (132 km route km). After almost 55 years, Indian Railways had decided to extend the electrification beyond Villupuram in the Chennai–Madurai– Kannyakumari section, one of the important trunk routes in the country.

The second phase of work on the Ariyalur–Tiruchi section had been completed. K.J.S. Naidu, Commissioner of Railway Safety, inspected the section along with the CPM and S. Subramhanyan, Divisional Railway Manager, Tiruchi Division, last week.

The CORE official said that the Commissioner had given his oral clearance and an official letter would be received in a day or two.

To start with, 10 pairs of trains would be operated on the Chennai Egmore–Tiruchi section on electric traction. Southern Railway sources said that it would be difficult to operate all trains on the section under electric traction in the absence of a traction sub-station at Tiruchi. Though the sub-station was ready in all respects, the TNEB was to complete its transmission line works for extending 110 KV power supply. It has promised to complete the work by August 15. Thereafter, all the trains could be operated on electric traction.


Hope to see Trichy - Madurai section on electrification works to be completed soon as well, and thus, help commuters at large ease travel between chennai and madurai via Trichy.

Five agri-clinics sanctioned for Trichy

TIRUCHI: To facilitate farmers to increase their agricultural productivity through a careful analysis of soil nutrients in their fields, the State Government has sanctioned five agri-clinics for Tiruchi district, Regional Joint Registrar of Co-operatives Rama. Jayampandian said.

Speaking at a ‘farmers meet’ organised jointly by the Indian Farmers’ Fertilisers Co-operative Limited (IFFCO), Tamil Nadu Cooperative Marketing Federation (TANFED) and the Tiruchi District Co-operative Union at the Primary Agricultural Cooperative Credit Society at Anbil near Lalgudi recently, Mr. Jayampandian said that the clinics would function on the campus of the credit societies in Anbil, Valanaadu, Thulaiyanatham, Varadarajapuram and Natarajarapuram in the district. Two clinics have already been started at Anbil and Valanaadu and the remaining three will be started in course of time.

He said that although farmers toiled for achieving higher productivity, their lack of interest in ascertaining the deficiency in the soil, its texture, excess or shortage of vital components was the major cause for the fall in yield.

The official appealed to the farmers to analyse a few soil samples collected from their fields at the agri-clinics and strictly adhere to remedial measures.

Chief Area Manager, IFFFCO, Tiruchi, B. Krishnan said that soil played a key role in stepping up agricultural productivity.

Farmers should adapt their cropping pattern, if needed, in accordance with the nutrients of the soil in their fields. Right application of soil-specific and crop-specific fertilisers would be an added advantage.

Seed Certification Officer, Lalgudi, Krishnamurthy, spoke on the importance of proper selection of seeds suited to a specific field. He suggested setting up of seed farms to meet the demand for quality seeds.

Co-operative Sub-Registrar, Lalgudi, S. Mayandi and president of Uzhavar Mandram Sachidanandam were among those who spoke.

Mathew Hayden likely to visit Tiruchi

Matthew Hayden is likely to visit Tiruchi. That ought to be great news for cricket buffs, especially aspiring cricketers of the Rock City.

According to Tamil Nadu Cricket Association (TNCA) secretary K. S. Viswanathan, the former Australian opener plans to visit various districts in the State for identifying talent. “Possibly we will try to bring him to Tiruchi,” he said while addressing a gathering during the 51st annual day celebrations of the Tiruchi District Cricket Association (TDCA) here recently.

Commending TDCA’s various initiatives to promote cricket in the district, Mr. Viswanathan observed that the 458 matches hosted by Tiruchi during 2008-09 was almost 50 per cent of what was conducted in Chennai.

கோலாலம்பூரிலிருந்து புறப்படும் இந்த விமானம் மாலை 4.30 மணிக்கு திருச்சிக்கு வந்து சேரும். பின்னர், மாலை 5 மணிக்கு திருச்சியிலிருந்து கோலாலம்பூருக்கு புறப்படும்.

பயணக் கட்டணம் ரூ. 1,500 மற்றும் விமான நிலைய வரி ரூ. 230 என மொத்த விமானப் பயணக் கட்டணம் ரூ. 1,730 என நிர்ணயிக்கப்பட்டுள்ளது. செப். 1-ம் தேதி முதல் 2010 ஆம் ஆண்டு ஏப். 30-ம் தேதி வரையிலான காலக்கட்டத்தில் பயணம் செய்ய ஜூலை 28-ம் தேதி தொடங்கி, ஆக. 2-ம் தேதி வரை முன் பதிவு செய்யப்படும்.

மேலும், விவரங்களுக்கு ஹண்ழ்ஹள்ண்ஹ.ஸ்ரீர்ம் என்ற இணையதளத்தில் பார்க்கலாம்' என ஏர் ஏசியா குழு வணிகப் பிரிவு மண்டலத் தலைவர் கத்லீன் டான் தெரிவித்துள்ளார்.

The company had already established its units in tier-II cities like Mysore, Mangalore, Kochi, Bhubaneswar and Chandigarh, Infosys CEO and Managing Director S Gopalakrishnan said in a lecture at a meeting organised by the local unit of the Confederation of Indian Industry in Tiruchirapalli.

He said he anticipated the global economic situation to improve by the end of this year and IT activities to emerge on top as before.

Infosys had not lost even a single customer during the global recession, but could have lost some revenue from certain companies, he said.

As of now, North American clients accounted for 62 per cent of its export revenues and European clientele 26 per cent, he said.
